District of Coldstream WorkSafe COVID-19 Safety Plan

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to evolve around the world. A lot has changed in a short amount of time and health authorities have called for dramatic actions to be taken to slow and contain the spread of the virus.

Council and Administration’s top priority is the health and safety of our citizens and employees. The District has activated its Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) and is working through a business continuity strategy to maintain District services and continue providing a healthy and safe work environment for our employees.

The District of Coldstream has been, and continues to, diligently monitor the potential COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation locally. The District is in regular contact with the Interior Health Authority (IHA) and Emergency Management BC. We are following the direction of provincial and federal health authorities, tracking the issue and adjusting our response plans as necessary. 

Health authorities have identified the following steps to help reduce the potential impact and spread of infection:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds;
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, especially with unwashed hands;
  • Practice social distancing, which means to keep 2 meters (6 ft) between yourself and others;
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick;
  • Cough and sneeze into your sleeve, and not your hands;
  • Stay home if you are sick to avoid spreading illness to others; and
  • Wipe surfaces and objects (e.g., phones, desk tops, door handles, light switches) with disinfectant often.

The COVID-19 situation is evolving rapidly. For the most up-to-date information, the District of Coldstream has provided links to federal and provincial health agency websites below.

Thank you for your interest in protecting your health, your family and your neighbours. We are in this together."
